Owner vacation rental

Marcia Schrock purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Marcia Schrock chose Lombardy

I love traveling and when on vacation with my family we stay in apartment rentals whenever possible. These accomodations have a more personal touch and a chance to mingle with the locals. My goal is to offer my guests exactly what I look for in a vacation rental: comfort, location and a trip that they will never forget.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A carefully renovated and spotless top floor apartment in a building with a lift, this property is very well situated only steps away from the lakefront, the old city of Como and the ferry terminal. The A/C is very effective and a lifesaver in the current temperatures. It's five minutes walk from the train terminal to Milan Cadorna. Marcia is the perfect host, never intrusive but just a text away and a fount of useful advice. We had a wonderful stay and would certainly come again - La Mansarda is very good value for money in an increasingly expensive part of the world. Highly recommended.

Great location, comfortable residence and lovely host.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed about ten days in Como. Walking either side of the lake is beautiful but our favorite was the right side as it takes you past the very best salads resturant and the funicular. Suggest the fast boat to mid-lake to visit the towns. We took a trip into Switzerland to see the alps, the Matterhorn and the glacier express.

The pizza below the apartment is good and if you turn left coming out the apartment door the first restaurant on the right corner is very good. We had a great time in Como. Marcia was an excellent host also providing a ride to and from the train!

Marcia was very friendly and helpful. The location 1/2 block from the ferry terminal on the lake was perfect. The unit was well supplied with appliances and basic needs like spices and coffee. She suggested activities and they were very nice. Found out she was from Pittsburgh.

Perfect location for Como exploration.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at La Mansarda very much. Located just steps from the boat dock, it is a perfect launching pad for trips around Lake Como, and Como itself is quite interesting, lovely, and historic. Many excellent nearby restaurants and shops. The apartment worked beautifully for us. Quiet, very private, nicely furnished, with excellent A/C ( helpful in July). The shower isn't great for tall people, but we were perfectly happy to cope with that, considering the advantages that La Mansarda offers. We'll come back. Marcia (owner) was extremely helpful, picking us up and dropping us off at the train station, and offering inside info about all manner of travel issues

A great position in lovely Como

  • 4 of 5

La Mansarda is in probably the best position possible in Como, 50 metres from the lake, on the edge of the old town and above a couple of good reataurants / cafes.

The apartment is exactly as its names suggests - an àttic apartment with sloping ceilings and some low corners; quite quaint.

Tons of natural light and ventilation and the expected noise from the restaurants all goes away when you lock up.

The downside of the attic is there are no views of the street level below and you become a bit detacted.

Marcia is a great host and her assistance with arriving and departing is great.

All in all , a very convenient base for a short stay.
